    can a re audio mx 12" handle 1200 watts

    re audio mx 12" wired parelle, would a hifonics bx1206b amplifier 1200 watts @ 1ohm rms be to much. the re is 1500 watts max, housed in a 2.25 cubic feet ported box tuned to 33hz

    The MX is 1,500 watts rms not max, and will take more

    That is a recomendation, your box is a big factor in the power handling

    You will be fine, just don't over gain, with a box that small you could get away with about 2,000 watts to that sub with no problems
